Last year, in an effort to improve the capability of our forums, we switched to new software. We expected tremendous scalability and rapid customization that would significantly improve each Member's experience across multiple devices and integrate flawlessly with social media platforms.
Unfortunately, after a significant capital expense, we have decided that the length of time and the additional cost to reach our goals make this enterprise untenable.
Thus, we have made the difficult decision to transition the forums to our original software platform. We’re excited that, in the nearly two years since we began the process of our most recent switch, our original platform has been upgraded significantly, and we are confident that the reversion will not only provide the stability that we desperately needed prior to our last move but will also return to the Membership the high level of customization that made our online community so great. We have also added technical resources to the GolfWRX staff that will allow us to build custom modules and modifications that we are confident will take the forums to the next level.
We remain the world's largest online golf community, and we still hold true to our core values and mission statement as written in 2005. Bearing both of those elements in mind, being the best and offering our Members a platform that is world-class are both requirements, not options, and it is that spirit that has motivated this decision.
So, please pardon our mess over the next five days or so while we transition the forums.
A few important notes: Current content will be accessible during that time, but the forums will be READ ONLY, and you will not be able to start new threads or reply to posts. Personal Messaging is enabled but PMs sent/received from the time the board was frozen will not carry over. We know this is inconvenient, and we apologize, and we greatly appreciate GolfWRXers bearing with us through the transition.
We are very excited about starting this next chapter for GolfWRX and getting back to the high-quality Member experience we all expect as soon as possible.
Hoping to get some input/thoughts on a couple swing changes. Generally play to between 7 - 9 hdcp, but continue to struggle with consistency. Misses are always left, either over draws or snap hooks when things are really off (before video below will show it's pretty obvious why). Dedicated to fixing inside takeaway and way too in to out swing path. Also have changed to a more neutral grip from a super strong grip. Current swing thought is keeping the right arm above the left during the takeaway, coupled with a more vertical wrist set to the top. Have hit a few good shots, but clearly will take some time. Want to make sure I'm not grooving any major faults with the changes. One thing I'm pretty encouraged by is the fact that right now contact is pretty awful, but the big hooks and snap hooks are gone. Misses are now (with swing changes) straight pushes or fades. First video is old swing, second is new. Thanks!
